If its 12 gauge, why do they advertise it as light-duty?
"Light duty" is in reference to the jacket, not the copper. These have a relatively thin jacket over the wires, rather than a heavy solid jacket like a heavy duty cord would have. I picked up a two-pack of 50ft cords that are the same as these... they are good for high power devices, but they don't give you the feeling that you could drive over them many times and have them hold up.
